Motorcycle Accidents in San Diego

Motorcyclists have little to no control over many dangers on the road. The San Diego accident lawyers at The Law Firm of Howard Williams know and fully understand the challenges riders face while trying to safely enjoy the road, and our attorneys are here to help when outside factors happen to put you in harm’s way.

Driving Conditions

    The conditions of the road can cause many problems for motorcycles. Potholes or inconsistencies that can be completely unnoticed by car and truck drivers can be dangerous for motorcyclists, and not being able to anticipate them can cause a crash. Several hazardous driving conditions include:

  • Inclement weather—fog, heavy winds, hail, ice, rain, snow, etc.
  • Poor-traction surfaces—gravel, manhole covers, mud/leaves, oil, wet pavement, paint etc.
  • Sudden, unexpected obstacles—People, animals, debris, litter, pedestrians, etc.
  • Uneven or damaged surfaces—potholes, broken or uneven pavement, bumps, holes, ruts, etc.

Negligent Drivers & Other Vehicles

There are many more cars and trucks on the roadway than motorcycles, and other drivers often fail to see motorcyclists because of their smaller size. When poor visibility conditions come with negligent driving, the consequences can be extremely dangerous.

Drivers often forget that motorcycle riders can easily slip into their blind spot or not be visible because of surrounding elements like bridges or fences. Other drivers also have to face the challenge of accurately judging the speed and distance of motorcycles, which can be a potentially fatal error in the case of a collision.

If you have been injured in result of a negligent driver call us immediately.

Steps to take after a motorcycle accident

If you are ever in a motorcycle accident, there are a few steps that you should take to protect yourself and your rights. Firstly, the law states that anyone involved in an accident must stop and remain on the scene. If you’ve been hurt, do not move. Wait for emergency personnel to arrive. However, if you can move around or have somebody at the scene to help you, below are a few useful steps that could be taken:
  • Take photos: Photo evidence of the site of the crash, the damage to your motorcycle and all of your injuries can be very useful.
  • Gather info: You will need to get the phone numbers, addresses and any other important info of all parties involved as well as anyone who witnessed the accident.
  • Be specific: It’s easy to forget crucial details if they are not written down right away. You probably aren’t thinking clearly after an accident, so it is good to write down the specifics like the date, time, location and position of the vehicles at the time of the crash.
  • Filing a police report: It’s important to report the incident to the police. Make sure you receive a copy of the police report too.
  • Preserve your vehicle: You may want to repair your motorcycle as soon as possible, but it is very important to preserve your vehicle for a thorough examination by an expert.
  • Contact an lawyer: It is in your best interest to contact an attorney right away after being in a motorcycle accident, or any type of accident for that matter. Call us today at (858) 654 – 0407.
